      Brentford vs Burnley Predictions


      Burnley come into the game after a thumping 5-0 win at MK Dons on Tuesday night. With the Clarets in danger of being caught by some of the play-off chasing teams it was an important win and their first on the road in the league in 6 attempts. It was a real team performance with 5 different goalscorers and Sean Dyche will have been delighted with his side’s biggest win of the season so far.

      They also picked up an excellent victory at Middlesbrough in the FA Cup last weekend so are gunning for 3 away wins in the space of a week here and will certainly come to the capital full of confidence that they can achieve that.

      It doesn’t appear to be a bad time to be playing Brentford either. They finished 2015 in very good form and had propelled themselves into the top half of the table and the fringes of the play-off picture. However the New Year has been less kind to them and they’ve lost all 3 matches in 2016 so far and while Burnley are hopeful of their 3rd away win of the week, Brentford are looking to avoid their 3rd home defeat in the space of 7 days.

      They were beaten 1-0 at home by Dean Smith’s old club, Walsall in the FA Cup at the weekend and lost by the same margin against table topping Middlesbrough on Tuesday night.

      Burnley are clearly the form side and have some genuine Premier League quality in their ranks and at 23/20 they are good value here with a 0.0 Asian Handicap.

      At full strength, which they are right now they are a match for anyone and with summer signings Matt Lowton, Joey Barton and top scorer Andre Gray all scoring in the win at Milton Keynes, some of the business they did after suffering relegation is starting to look pretty shrewd.

      Consider backing Burnley to rack up another win here and move to within 3 points of 2nd place Derby by winning this one 2-0 at 12/1.
